Vacation Bible School album hits Number 1 on the Apple Music chart.
Vacation Bible School
In June, Lifeway’s 2022 Vacation Bible School program album, “Spark Studios,” hit No. 1 on Apple Music’s Top 100 Children’s Music Albums Chart. A few weeks after, it still remained in the Top 5. The album was produced by Lifeway Kids Worship.
This year, Lifeway VBS aims to teach children about the creativity of God. They want to emphasize that God’s creativity is unending, that “God’s creativity didn’t stop in Genesis.”
“The Master Artist is working to redeem, reclaim, and transform us – His creation – to the design He planned for us,” the Spark Studios website says. “Kids will see the beautiful truth that they are God’s workmanship as they learn to use their talents to bring glory to Him.”
Apple Music Top 100
Lifeway’s kid’s ministry specialist Melita Thomas said that the album’s success is encouraging especially after the pandemic.
“With the pandemic negatively impacting many churches’ ability to do VBS the past two years, I think this is evidence that VBS is returning in full force across the country,” Melita said. “We’re very proud of the role music plays in Lifeway’s VBS as it’s an intentional part of our strategy. You’ll find the daily Bible verses embedded in the daily songs, and the theme song often includes the theme verse in its entirety, which makes it easy for kids to memorize.”
She also said that they want to use music to make children’s learning of God’s word easier.
“Music is such a powerful teaching tool, and it has a way of sticking with you long after VBS is over,” she added. “We want the truths of Scripture to be cemented deep in a child’s mind and heart so that they carry it with them for life. Music at VBS is not about learning and performing motions. It’s about getting the truth of God’s Word into the hearts and minds of children and their families.”
